Drowning In The Sea Of Love
Joe Simon Lyrics


I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But now I'm drowning, drowning in the sea of love

Let me tell ya all about it
I've been out here so very long, I've lost all my direction
Baby when you came my way I thought I'd found my protection
But a strong wind came into my life, surely took me by surprise
And I can't seem to control these tears that's falling from my eyes

I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning, drowning in the sea of love

Listen to me
Baby I depended on you, for our love and obligation
But now you gone and deserted me, can't you see that I'm in desperation
I'm in the middle of a bad love storm, ew yeah I just can't let it boy I
Looked around and all I could see, was water coming over me

I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning, drowning in the sea of love

All I do is cry, all I do is walk around and cry
But right now I'm drowning, oh I'm drowning in the sea of love

I've been down one time
I've been down two times
But I can't control myself, I'm drowning, drowning in the sea of love

But that's alright, I don't mind drowning for your love
That's alright baby, hear me when I say it's alright
You got the kind of love that make me feel alright
You got the kind of love baby that make me cry all night long
You got the kind of love baby make me do things I don't wanna do

Fantastic opening, the guitars, violins, Joe's voice & those background singers....One time. Two times. Good '70s memories.

@1stP3&10 yes he is with the ANCESTOR now

What?

This is a classic Gamble-Huff production, and I like how Joe Simon's voice meshes with the Philly sound. I'm pretty sure that's Norman Harris playing the Wes Montgomery-style licks on guitar while Bobby Eli is playing the guitar with the wah-wah effect.

Oh sh... no wonder this is" happening. G&H, sounds of my childhood.

@Kurt Adams Absolutely!!!

@Todd Jenkins - I heard three guitar parts. Mr. Harris', the wah-wah and the other electric quasi-rockish guitar. Unless my ears are deceiving me.

I think a typical recording session in Philly in those days had something like 7 violins, 2 violas and 2 celli. This was definitely from the period where, for the Gamble/Huff music machine, it was coming together.
